I'll try some other content, but unfortunately, so far I don't see anything to get excited about here.
I tried The War of the Gargantuas last night, as this is now the oldest title I have, and it played flawlessy. In fact the last time I played this movie was on my BH200, which has the Marvell QDEO, and it looked stunning with the OPPO.
The 24 frame playback worked with out a hitch.
As I said I never had any tearing issues since I got the OPPO, June 2009, and I have used the 24 frame option for DVD since I got it.
Most of the DVD I had/have are main stream releases. I have been eliminating my DVDs as their Blu ray copies are released.
The only issue I have seen on some movies is I would get a shimmering effect with the occasional video drop outs, but stopping the movie for 5 to 10 seconds and then starting it again would eliminate the issues as it would have to reengage 24 frame DVD mode. The movie I discovered this on was The Lost World of the 4 DVD box set of Jurassic Park.
My set up is the OPPO 83 using 1080p24 and 24 frame DVD mode set on, HDMI to Onkyo TX SR606 A/V receiver, then HDMI to a Pioneer Kuro 5010 using 72 Hz mode. My HDMI cables are 6 feet long and are BlueJeans Cables.
If you can post some of the titles that are dispalying the tearing issue I will try them if I have them. My DVD collection is getting pretty small.
